Wines of South Africa: Old Vine Podcast
Wines of South Africa (WOSA) has launched a series of podcast. In each episode they talk to a selection of winemakers, winery owners, and other members of South Africa’s wine industry to learn more about South African wine.
In this episode WOSA takes a look not at a specific region or grape variety, but at grapevines – old vines, specifically. Some of South Africa’s best wines come from vines aged 35, 50, or many decades older than that. Economic pressures were pushing many of these vineyards to be uprooted, but an exciting program, the Old Vine Project has been working to change that.
